A sloop is a sailing vessel with one fore-and-aft rigged mast that caries a jib headsail and a mainsail. The Cricket carries a lug-rigged mainsail and a large jib. This sail plan maximizes the amount of sail area, while allowing the vessel to manuever upwind. The solid brass ballast keel eliminates the use of lead and give this little ship the stability needed to go to sea.
Semi-Scale Model Kits invite new and experienced modelers into a rewarding experience of wooden boatbuilding and sailing with easy to follow illustrated instructions and plans.
